Item description for International Human Rights - Student Edition by Francisco Forrest Martin Rights International...
The international human rights field is a rapidly emerging and potentially lucrative litigation market. Over the last ten years, international tribunals, such as the European and Inter-American Courts of Human Rights, have become increasingly powerful and effective in stopping human rights violations and awarding compensation to victims. Also, unknown to most lawyers, these tribunals award attorney's fees and costs. International Human Rights Law & Practice: Cases, Treaties and Materials integrates the law of these international tribunals and provides a comparative analysis of this jurisprudence with US and foreign law. Developed as a practitioner's deskbook, International Human Rights Law & Practice presents extracts from cases frequently unavailable in law libraries for use in pleadings. The Deskbook edition is designed with the beginning practitioner and clinical professor in mind. Rules of procedure, model pleadings, case flow charts, troubleshooting checklists, and a tribunal address directory are included to provide the beginning practitioner with all the basic information required to practice before these tribunals. With over 100 countries now recognizing the jurisdiction of these tribunals, the litigation market in international human rights is vast. For example, refugees are an untapped source of ready-made cases for international courts. In International Human Rights Law & Practice, immigration attorneys will learn how to turn an asylum case into an international court case with little additional expense.
In International Human Rights Law & Practice, civil rights and criminal defense attorneys will discover that international law affords more protection to their clients than local law. Because customary international law is binding on many domestic courts, international law governing, e.g., gay/lesbian rights, racial discrimination, immigrants' rights, use of force, workers' rights, and the death penalty, is indispensable to US civil rights and criminal defense attorneys facing unfavorable domestic law. International Human Rights Law & Practice is supported by a Documentary Supplement volume which includes the full text of all relevant treaties, conventions, procedural rules, case flow charts and model pleadings. Together these two volumes provide a complete resource for attorneys and professors desiring to become active in the international human rights field.
